In yesterday’s Guardian James Wescott asked, “Has the Recession Sparked a New Renaissance?” His review of The Armory Show sums up the tenor of the current show and its breadth. Expansion is a minor theme, and one that connects to the corresponding Scope Art Fair, happening just a little north east of the Piers 92 and 94.
